Maher Responds To Tlaib's Calls To Boycott His Show And It's Pure Perfection

Over the weekend, HBO host Bill Maher slammed the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions Movement, commonly referred to as the BDS Movement. According to Maher, the BDS Movement is a "bulls**t" litmus test for Democrats. Specifically, he was referencing Reps. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) and Ilhan Omar (D-MN), who have been very vocal about boycotting Israel. 

"BDS is a bulls**t purity test by people who want to appear woke and have actually slept through history class," Maher said, at which point the audience broke out into a thunderous applause. "It's predicated on this notion that is very shallow thinking, that the Jews are in Israel are mostly white and the Palestinians are browner so they [Palestinians] must be innocent and correct and the Jews must be wrong. As if occupation came out of the blue, that this completely peaceful people found themselves occupied. Forget about the infectadas and the suicide bombings and the rockets and how many wars?"

After hearing his take, Tlaib did what she does best: call for people to boycott the popular liberal host.

But Maher clapped back at Tlaib, reminding her that most Democrats in the House voted to condemn the BDS Movement. 

It's hilarious to see someone like Maher, who is often critical of President Donald Trump, and conservatives, to go after people in the Democratic Party. He's saying what the majority of Americans think and feel. The reality is simple: Tlaib and Omar are in the minority here. They can call for a boycott of Israel. It's not going to happen. They can call for a boycott fo Maher's show. It's not going to happen. If anything, whenever they call for these boycotts, it seems like they have the opposite impact: they garner more support for their opponents.
